Chapter Summary: Numbers Chapter 25 Summary

Into Numbers chapter 25 summary, where the Israelites took to worshiping Baal. As the Israelites took abode in Shittim, the people began to have fleshly whorish relationships with the daughters of Moab.

Moab invited Israel to their sacrifices, which were to their gods, and Israel RSVPed and went in, ate, and gave obeisance to the gods of Moab. They joined themselves to Baal Peor and it angered the God of Israel greatly.

    So what exactly was the plague?

    • Good day sister Christy, the chapter didn’t tell exactly what the plague was. However, plagues are like pestilences, which are diseases. It could have been something like Cornovirus/Covid-19 that is plaguing the world today. It took the demise of the perpetrators of that grave sin for the disease to be stopped.

      Thank you for visiting and for your question. Grace and peace and blessings to you and your household.
